    Peres tells Sharon get out of Gaza Strip
    The veteran Israeli peacemaker Shimon Peres has used an 80th birthday speech to implore Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to pull Israeli troops and settlers out of the Gaza Strip.

    As Mr Sharon averted his eyes, Mr Peres stared down at his old friend and political rival from the podium of a peace symposium, urging the right-wing leader to make what he described as a bold move.

    In his message to the Prime Minister, Mr Peres has said Israel's demographic clock is winding down and the Jews will lose their majority in their own state if a Palestinian state is not created alongside.

    Mr Peres' message to the Palestinians has been even more blunt, saying if they do not end their acts of violence, they will be the next target in the campaign against terrorism.
